Product of India

Baby Blanket can be used multiple times. Be sure to clean well between uses.

Designed to save the muss and fuss involved in growing microgreens in soil, Baby Blanket is a felted jute grass mat that is processed by a water method and not treated chemically. This food safe product is grown and manufactured using organic practices but is not certified organic. (In Canada only, foods can be certified organic.)

Using Baby Blanket in combination with Sea Spray Kelp or an organic natural fertilizer of your choice, you will have all the advantages of soil growing without the disadvantages of the mess. Use it for wheat, Kamut, rye, millet, oat, and barley grass, buckwheat, sunflower and pea shoots and any other microgreen varieties that do not specifically require soil. It is also great for gelatinous seeds like arugula, flax and cress.

Cut the baby blanket to size with scissors, and place in your preferred growing tray that does have drainage. Wet it with water or sea spray solution and keep the seeds moist by sprinkling or misting with water as required.

Baby Blanket can be reused. Dry it and carefully scrape and shake clean of old roots. Every few times of use it is best to sanitize and remove any plant pathogens by placing in boiling water for a few minutes.

Jute mats, or baby blanket, and hemp mats, are used as an alternative to soil and the procedures are similar to microgreen and hydroponic growing.

  • Soak the mat and wring out until damp.

  • Soak large, fibrous and grain seed, and place on the blanket. Do not soak small soft-hulled seeds (cabbage family, radish, mustard). Alfalfa and clover are soaked long like a fibrous seed.

  • You may cover and put under weight or put under a dome, and when watering only mist from above. We usually cover and place weight on top.

  • Once the weight is off, or germination has begun, mist a couple times per day. If you see water pooling in the corner, you have misted enough.

  • Once roots reach through the bottom of the mat they can be watered from below.

Anything can be grown on fibre mats, but the resulting shoots are never as large or robust as seeds grown on soil. To make them bigger
you should water with a liquid fertilizer.

    The baby blanket is good for some seeds, but not all. Good for hydroponic process with small seeds. Seems to be too stiff for roots to penetrate easily. Am thinking of pounding it on a log with a hammer to break up the long fibers. It DOES hold water. So far I have only done sunflower seeds, radish seeds and broccoli. Sunflowers need soil, but radishes and broccoli work fine on it. kind of like a hydroponic set up. I’m still learning
